This NIHCM-funded study will explore whether Medicare beneficiaries give their primary care physicians higher ratings for the care experience if these physicians have a general practice style characterized by more provision of low-value services. Results will help to increase the effectiveness of demand- and supply-side interventions to improve the value of health care services.
